Sean Mortimer and SBC Business Magazine have just released a huge article about one of the biggest skateboard legends Vancouver has ever experienced. At 50 years old, Peter Ducommun, or PD as everyone knows him celebrates the 35th anniversary of one of the most recognized hard core brands in existence – Skull Skates.
This article is a must read if you want to know any history about skateboarding in Canada. PD has been around for a long time, as a skateboarder, a snowboarder, a BMX rider, a skimboarder, and a fearless and intelligent Businessman. Never backing down from his beliefs PD has made his point across the world through Vancouver’s own PD’s Hot Shop and Skull Skates. He is one of the few people in the world that didn’t give up on skateboarding when the “Fad” died out in 1990 and it’s those people we need to thank the most for what skateboarding has become today.
